You could have taken a vacation day if you needed it! Now is not the time to dwell on past -- keep moving forward! Nintendo awaits.
Honestly...with me being so familiar with not having vacation days in SYWTBAI I keep forgetting Vacation Days exist. That's my bad because if I would have remembered they were a thing I certainly would have suggested we take one. I think the Rocket Rods concept was great and we had some really good gags for it, but scheduling killed us. Today was one of those "endlessly busy with everything going wrong" type of days for me, but tomorrow I literally have nothing going on, haha. I'll definitely be more tuned in to if we need to use vacation days after this.
